Sara Ayyash – Pastry Chef

Born in Orlando, Florida and raised in southwest Virginia, she started baking as a child and the passion never faded.

A graduate of the Florida Culinary Institute, Sara previously worked at the Blackberry Farm in Tennessee and most recently held the position as Executive Pastry Chef at the Jefferson Hotel here in Richmond, Virginia for five years.

Her charming southern accent is a reflection of the simple, yet sophisticated transformation of dessert into an art form.
